Converted the source shapefile to ArcSDE GeoDatabase Feature Class format and defined new Feature Class named Northeast_State_Poly in ArcGIS 9.2. Imported the attribute definitions, loaded features and imported metadata from Northeast_State_Poly.shp shapefile. Once the data was loaded into the CT DEP's ARCSDE GeoDatabase, the information becomes available internally to CT DEP. For the purpose of distributing this information to the general public, these data are exported from the DEPs ArcSDE GeoDatabase and converted to shapefile format using the ArcGIS 9.2 CopyFeatures command.
